A week or so ago I started a thread about my PowerBook's logic board dying. Now I'm getting a new machine and I'd like to get everything up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible. The hard drive from my PowerBook is fine and I have an enclosure for it. I want to get all my data and settings transferred to my new machine. Ordinarily, I gather you could use something like Carbon Copy Cloner to make a clone of the hard drive on the old machine and then put that on to the new machine and that would be that. My question is, is there any way I can do this if all I have is the hard drive in an enclosure? Related to this, when OSX asks you if you want to transfer data over from an old machine when setting up a new install, can you do it from an external drive, or do you need to do it from the intact machine? Could I just attach my old hard drive at transfer data and settings over from that? If anyone has any ideas on this, I'd love to hear them.
